We should've walked away but we stayed.... the parking lot had random people hanging around it ....there was a note on the building telling us to lock our cars.... The landscaping was unkept and had trash all over it. The stairway leading to the upper levels stunk like garbage. Our room was dirty looking there was stains on the walls... More

We checked in to find a non-working toilet (water was turned off) and no towels in room. We called the front desk and it was remedied quickly. There was a cigarette burn in bed linens and remote for TV didn't work. AC worked well and good water pressure and temp. General atmosphere was dingy and a bit sketchy. Within 5... More

I was not happy at all.When I went to shower there was blood on the shower curtain from a previous visitor. The wash clothes didn't look clean, there was black specs all over it and also on the towels too. The picture frame had broken glass in it. The beds did not even have a fitted sheet on them. It...

Lobby door propped open with rock as the door handle was missing. The check-in attendant was pleasant. We inquired about breakfast and was advised in AM between 7 and 11, in the lobby. The 'manager'(?) came from the back room to say that the control for the AC was on the wall. There appeared to be only 1 other vehicle... More

This place needs to be shut down. It's not motel but a crack house. While walking to our "suite" we passed an open room and it looked like something that would be on Hoarders! There was garbage literally piled to the ceiling. Our "suite" want much better. The placed reeked of urine, a tweeker asked my 16 year old for... More

I was looking for a hotel, coming from Chicago to take my son for his New Student Orientation at SIU. I booked this room on their website based on its affordability and closeness to SIU. 1. They did not have my reservation. 2. The room still had someone else's belongings in it and some mouse droppings in there. 3. The... More

My family and I got back yesterday from this place. When I say it was horrible, that's an understatement. The outside itself will scare you off, but the inside is much worse. The walls were stained. The sheets were filthy. And the shower... I had to wear my flip flops IN THE SHOWER. The "white" towels were literally black. When... More

This place was DISGUSTING, and that's putting it mildly. Now, I understand why they were the ONLY hotel in the area with a room available during graduation. The concrete floors on the landing for the second floor was covered in urine. The room was filthy. I walked in, walked through, and immediately returned my keycard to the Bates Motel-like innkeeper,... More

This place is indescribably HORRIBLE! So much so that had I not arrived at 3 in the morning there is no way in hell I would have stayed here! This has to be the nastiest place that has ever put up a sign and charged people to stay. I found out from a family member that one of the rooms... More

This place is awful. It is dirty, the beds are stained, and the bathrooms are gross. The "fan" in the bathroom recycled air back into the room. The TV didn't work--no remote. The pillows, well, let's just say I wouldn't sleep on them. You would be better off sleeping in a tent.
